My love for creating special occasions began early with childhood dreams of living on the Biltmore Estate, planning parties for friends (from hot dog roasts to major galas) and assisting my mother with every kind of event you might imagine. Yes, this Planner/Celebration thing runs in the family. No matter where I was and what job I held through the years, I always found myself planning some type of fabulous event.
In 2008, I launched a wedding planning company of my own. I delighted in helping brides navigate through the challenges of wedding planning from designing a smooth flow of festivities to invitation etiquette. There are so many possibilities and choices when it comes to weddings, and I enjoyed helping each couple find and create what would make their wedding as unique as they are themselves. I was able to add value to my planning services by developing a team of coordinators and offering floral/design services. Then in 2014, I did what conventional wisdom says is impossible — I sold a company built on my reputation and with my own name in the title. The new owner enjoys continued success which makes me feel like one proud mama.
Now I spend my time focusing on helping creative entrepreneurs, mompreneurs and small business owners navigate toward success in business through Angel Biz Consulting. So many creative people have wonderful ideas, but need solid business and moral support to reach their full potential. I find incredible fulfillment in helping people turn their hobbies and dreams into profitable reality.
My formal education includes an AFA in Music, BA in French, and MPA in Public Affairs. I have a husband and three children who are all completely different bringing endless joy and challenges to my days. If I can squeeze a free moment in anywhere, you will find me outdoors, reading a book (action novels are my favorite), playing on social media, and realizing God’s grace for my every day moments.
On this site, I share business wisdom, life inspiration and laughable moments. As an event planner at heart, I will always enjoy helping people create a time and space for relationships to grow, so don’t be surprised to see my current events highlighted from time to time.
I look forward to connecting with you!
